Copy and paste it into this math solver webpage.
See what the computer tells you the answer is.

6÷2(1+2)=y

You could sub all of these for variables:
6÷2*(1+2)=y

You always do bracket first (that IS the rules).
Thus it becomes:
6÷2*(3)=y
6÷2*3=y

I think we can all agree on that.

OK.............

Now let's sub these with some variables:
6÷2*3=y

n will now mean 3:
6÷2*n=y

Which becomes:
6÷2n=y

Let's rearrange to put all variable on one side.
6=2ny

Now let's solve for ny
6÷2=ny
3=ny

Now let's swap n back with a 3.
3=3y

Now let's solve for y.
3=3y
3÷3=y
1=y

I still get my same answer (because I followed the proper math-rules).

You're fucking idiot because there are no variables in the equation. Please stay in canada, we already have our share of retards
